Analysis of “Whiteness as Property” By Cheryl I. Harris
Rather, the law has established and protected an actual property interest in whiteness itself, which shares the critical characteristics of property and accords with the many and varied theoretical descriptions of property.
Although by popular usage property describes “things” owned by persons, or the rights of persons with respect to a thing, the concept of property prevalent among most theorists, even prior to the twentieth century, is that property may “consist of rights in ‘things’ that are intangible, or whose existence is a matter of legal definition.
The theoretical bases and conceptual descriptions of property rights are varied, ranging from first possessor rules, to creation of value, to Lockean labor theory, to personality theory, to utilitarian theory. However disparate, these formulations of property clearly illustrate the extent to which property rights and interests embrace much more than land and personalty. Thus, the fact that whiteness is not a “physical” entity does not remove it from the realm of property.
Whiteness is not simply and solely a legally recognized property interest. It is simultaneously an aspect of self-identity and of personhood, and its relation to the law of property is complex. Whiteness has functioned as self- identity in the domain of the intrinsic, personal, and psychological; as reputation in the interstices between internal and external identity; and, as property in the extrinsic, public, and legal realms.
According whiteness actual propetty status converted an aspect of whitwness into an external object of property, moving whiteness from privileged identity to a vested interest. The law’s construction of whiteness defined and affirmed critical aspects of identity who is white ; of privilege what benefits accrue to that status ; and, of property what legal entitlements arise from that status.
Whiteness at various times signifies and is deployed as identity, status, and property, sometimes singularly, sometimes in tandem.
